New Works by Philip Juras and Betty Robinson shown at Carolina Galleries.

CHARLESTON, SC -- Carolina Galleries presents for the month of May "New Works by Philip Juras and Betty Robinson." A founding member of the Charleston Fine Art Dealers' Association (CFADA), the gallery upholds the centuries-old tradition of fine works of art of and about the South. This tradition continues with new works by these two fine artists.

Landscape painter Philip Juras, an Augusta, Ga. native, traveled and painted landscapes in England, Germany, India, and the western U.S. The majority of his current work explores southeastern landscapes that have remained in a natural state though he still paints during his foreign travels. Juras' work is held in private collections in the United States, Germany and India, and has been exhibited in solo as well as juried group exhibitions.

Betty Robinson, a native of Greer, S.C., resides in Georgetown. Her lifetime of painting is acknowledged by the numerous awards she has received from the South Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky Watercolor Societies. Her paintings are in many museum and corporate collections, and her love of landscape, particularly the marshland, is evident as she captures the ever-changing coastline of the South Carolina Lowcountry. The immediate impact of her work is the magnificent use of color combined with an abstract vision on a predominantly realist landscape. The result is an energized, vibrant painting equally comfortable in a traditional or modern environment.

Covering two distinct periods in one distinct gallery, Carolina Galleries has been profiled in Architectural Digest, National Geographic Explorer, Southern Accents, and Town & Country.
